Radiologist receives SAR’s best paper award

Smith_AndrewDr. Andrew Smith, assistant professor of radiology and director of radiology research, recently received the Best Research Paper Award at the Society of Abdominal Radiology's annual meeting.

Smith's multi-institutional project focused on the outcomes, complications and costs of care associated with the management of cystic kidney cancer.

Smith collaborated on the paper with colleagues at the University of Alabama-Birmingham and Wake Forest, his research team in radiology and urology, UMMC Cancer Center staff, and Dr. Xu Zhang and Dr. Michael Griswold of the Center for Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. The group's work may lead to a multi-institutional prospective clinical trial aimed at reducing complications and costs and changing the management of cystic kidney cancer across the world.

The Society of Abdominal Radiology is an international organization that focuses on advances in diagnosis and intervention in gastrointestinal and genitourinary radiology.
